Maria Vittoria Lonardi started this petition to European Union and
Many products made with biodegradable materials alternative to plastic are overpriced and not yet competitive.
The reduction of plastic products consumption can contribute to tackle the emergency of plastic in the oceans and in the environment in general in our overly polluted planet.
A change in the consumer's habits would make the difference.

A lower taxation for the consumer, for instance 4 %, would reduce the cost of the biodegradable products and would promote the choice to buy it instead of the plastic alternative.
Also, the retailers would be induced to propose more eco friendly options for the costumers not yet sensitive to the environmental cause.
Every product that doesn't harm the planet should be promoted worldwide.
Cuttlery, nappies, dog waste bags, biodegradable soap are some of the products that should benefit from the tax reduction.

I started this petition because…
I am 30 and mom of a baby.
I have tried to be a conscious consumer and I have noticed that environmentally friendly alternatives to polluting products exists but still take a marginal place on shop's shelves.
I believe that the best way to promote them is making them competitive.
A tax reduction might be a start to making them more requested by the consumers and visible.
